Quixote

partial cover detail of Quixote Vol. V, No. 4, edited by Morris Edelson combined with Eighth Last Issue of the Buddhist Third Class Junkmail Oracle, edited by Steve Ferguson.

Morris Edelson, Ph.D., (April 25, 1937 to Nov. 25, 2017) was born in Los Angeles and spent his early years in Beaumont, Texas. In 1959, he joined the U.S. Army, served 3 years in Germany in a helicopter unit, and was a reporter for Stars and Stripes. With the GI bill, he obtained a bachelor’s and master’s degrees at Lamar University in Beaumont; was friends with Janis Joplin, started a coffee house and was in the civil rights movement. He joined the 1965 march from Selma to Montgomery, and spoke out against racism in Beaumont, which landed him in jail.

In Madison for graduate school, Morris started Quixote Magazine and published the works of the unknown and known, including Charles Bukowski, Allen Ginsberg, Pablo Neruda, and d.a. levy. He directed plays demanding fairness, equity, and social justice, including MacBird. He brought writers, poets, and acting troupes to Madison, including the Living Theatre, who lampooned public fears of nudity and sexuality, and the San Francisco Mime Troupe, who joined the Dow Sit-In in Oct. 1967.
